Congratulations, fashion folks: We've made it to the end of Paris Fashion Week, which means that the Fall 2019 season has officially wrapped up on the runway. As one of the most jam-packed weeks on the fashion month schedule, Paris has maintained a full roster of high-caliber design talent even as some of the other fashion week schedules have slimmed down. What that meant this season was that Paris in particular had a lot to offer, from an emotional final Chanel show by the late Karl Lagerfeld to a Grace Jonescameo on the Tommy Hilfiger stage, PFW was rife with memorable moments.
Along the way, designers showing in Paris built momentum for trends that we'd already seen elsewhere — the capes that Milan loved, the animal print that New York was so fond of and the head-to-toe red London favored — continued to show up in Paris, too. But there were newer design convergences, like the sudden appearance of electrifying chartreuse everywhere showgoers turned, as well as plenty of checkerboard prints.
Considering how much fashion has been loving slime green and highlighter-bright hues of late, it perhaps shouldn't be surprising that an electrifying shade of chartreuse was so popular this season. At Marine Serre the clothing was literally made of reflective material, but for other designers like Nina Ricci, Issey Miyake and Vivienne Westwood, the color was so bright it hardly needed any help.
